Donia Ismail is a French Algerian-Egyptian journalist and deputy editor-in-chief of Arabia Vox. She’s the producer of Allô 213? podcast, winner of the Paris Podcast Festival 2022, which focuses on Algeria. In 2022, she joined the collective Arabengers which sheds a light on the Arab diaspora in France.
Some feared the 60th anniversary of Algeria’s independence wouldn’t be a festive occasion for the diaspora in France, but one collective decided to take action by creating a safe space to share stories and celebrate heritage, writes Donia Ismail.
